Across the Bay, Pink Rock, 2011, Louise Balaam, Kent, UK. "My work is concerned with an emotional response to the natural world, in particular to the quality of light. After drawing in the landscape I paint intuitively in the studio, using direct, gestural brustrokes. I am an Academician of the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol, and a member of the New English Art Club."
